The Spirit of Aggieland

"Some may boast of prowess bold, of the school they think so grand. But there's a spirit can ne'er be told. It's the spirit of Aggieland."
Thought my Aggie friends might enjoy some great pics taken during last week's Army game. I found these on Texags. SO GREAT! Click on them to get the full effect.
Mike Goodson being a good sport.

Aggie team singing the Spirit of Aggieland before the game.

We don't have cheer leaders. We have 5 male yell leaders. After an Aggie victory, the fish in the corps of cadets have to chase down and tackle the yell leaders and carry them all the way across campus to the fish pond where they have yell practice to prepare for the next Aggie game.

The Nationally Famous...Fightin Texas Aggie Band! WHOOP!

We NEVER lose at halftime!

Yeah, you better be prayin boy! Justin Brantley, the punter.
"After they've boosted all the rest, they will come and join the best. For we are the Aggies, the Aggies are we. We're from Texas AMC." (from the "Spirit of Aggieland")
Farmer's Fight!

Can you tell I'm homesick?
Gig'Em Ags.

Great pics.
If it makes you and Jennifer feel better, I'm "homesick" for the Aggie games too and I live here! At least once each season I drive by campus on game day just to take it all in. I think we're getting season tickets next year! The other day when we went to get Stephen's parking pass, Lauren asked, "Am I an Aggie now because I went to the Aggie school?"
